Default Young George Foreman vs Randall Tex Cobb

George Foreman, circa 1974 vs Randall Tex Cobb, from whenever his prime was. A match up I've never previously pondered before. What's your call? The hammer vs the anvil I guess, but would the anvil exhaust the hammer, or would it "crumble"?

Pre Ali George would KO Tex quite early.
Comeback George would get an easy UD.

Cobb was durable but ever so easy to hit, Foreman gassed so If Cobb could get past 5 rds he could pull a purity...Good chins can neutralize power. the thing with Tex Cobb is that he really was not a puncher (neither was Young I know) but Cobb's skill set was also elementary....George has the edge everywhere except stamina and chin....so Foreman by stop by rd 5 or w10.....in a 15 rder Big G may be screwed

Tex had a legendary chin I believe he could survive a few rounds before being stopped on his feet around the 4-5th round ala Chuvalo. Would be good fight had Tex packed a better punch.

Jesus Cobb takes a shellacking in this one
Foreman KO anywhere from the 2nd to 4th round
Would it surprise me if Cobb lasted longer no it wouldn't but it might be better for Cobb if it ended quite early

Foreman on cuts or late stoppage. Cobb did beat ancient Earnie Shavers but Foreman, while not having the best stamina, wouldn't gas out like Shavers did.
